The 2021 MLB Season
The Best Lefthanded Batters and Lefthanded Pitchers in Baseball
We were hoping not to write about COVID-19 this year...
After a COVID free spring training, the virus struck MLB Opening Day. The Washington Nationals three game series against the New York Mets was postponed because of ongoing COVID concerns within the Nationals team and organization. The Nationals/Braves on Monday, April 5th was also postponed, but on Tuesday afternoon they finally opened the season. The Nationals roster included 10 players who were late replacements for the 10 on the injured list because of COVID.
After that first week, all other scheduled games had been played (other than postponements by bad weather). until this weekend when the Twins/Angels games on Saturday and Sunday, April 17-18, were postponed due to a number of Twins personnel testing positive.
Since that time, individual players have tested positive and missed time, and a couple of teams have had scares among their coaching staff, but the games have been played.
